Motivated to Organize
We just purchased these great baskets to help organize the Elfa shelves in the laundry room. In addition to adding some charm to the laundry room, the baskets make it easier to use the high shelves above the machines. The largest one is used for laundry. Thank you to the store clerks for loaning us a tape measure to make sure our purchases would fit. However, if we messed up on the measurements, the Elfa shelves could be easily shifted to fit the baskets.

Attractive and sturdy
I like these bins; they are attractive, and sturdy, and maintain a subtlety that allows me to store them openly. I particularly like the handles, even though they are probably not strong enough to be used for more than just an initial tug to then grab the sides of the bin for full access.

I am sorry the Mocha color is no longer available. The size of these baskets work well for me and they are attractive. I hate that the same colors are not kept longer - it is nice to be able to add more to products that I already have.

Good looking but worried about durability
Just the right size and height for my kids backpacks in the mud room under bench. But given that it's paper - am a bit worried about its durability. Otherwise, a handsome product.

Very good for storage but probably not sturdy enough to stack or to carry anything heavy.

beautiful--not super sturdy, sides too slanted
I purchased 7 of these for use in the bottom shelves of an expedit shelving unit. I selected these particular bins because I loved the crochet boxes in the same line and wanted a bin that would coordinate. These are beautiful bins. I ordered the lighter color, which is slightly darker than the ivory shade of the photo, but still very pretty. I do think that these are prettier than they are useful, though. The sides are too slanted to hold much except books or magazines, but the containers themselves are not suited to holding books because they aren't very sturdy. I kept them because they look nice, fit my space pretty well and they coordinate well with the crochet box, but I wish they were a little taller with straight sides and sturdier construction.

Crochet baskets rock!
I bought half a dozen of these baskets in the two sizes and the two colors, and they are great! We store our kids' toys in them. It makes cleanup easier, and I love that my family room suddenly looks a bit more grownup!

A Great Closet Organizer!
I bought this to put bags and purses in and put it on the top shelf on my closet. It works great! It has a styrofoam core, so it is light weight and able to hold its shape unlike some organizing products I have bought. The handle makes grabbing it from the shelf easy. Great for odd shaped, light weight items!

Works fine for the purpose
This is for my open shelves over the media center.
The size is perfect for my purpose.

good size, surface rough
The bin fits what was needed, but aesthetically is a little rougher than expected, i.e. crocheted surface looks less rustic than unrefined. Will likely tuck it under a table rather than set on shelf as planned . . .

crochet bins are wonderful
I just bought your crochet bins and they are just what I needed to help me organize magazines, newspaper clippings, and recipes that I've accumulated over the years. After I got home from the Container Store, I immediately placed my pile of papers, etc in the bins and started to go through everything and throw many things away. It helped me to get the messy pile off my floor and dresser and I no longer have an eyesore in my bedroom. It also motivated me to finally go through and throw things out that I don't need and file things that I will use. Thank you, thank you, thank you!

I have been looking for a nice looking, quality basket for my knitting and finally found the right one at Container Store. It is perfect for my projects and looks nice in my living room. I love the clean look to it.

A great toy catchall
I wanted some nice bins to use in my living room that would help contain the toys. These are perfect! They are very sturdy, my 10 month old is able to pull himself up on the side and pull out toys. My 2 year old and her dad use them as "baskets" and toss the toys in at clean up time. They have held up wonderfully and are a great alternative to a toy box.
